New Diesel Oil Specifications
Economy Will Be A Major Factor In The New Requirements.
Technical Product Manager,
Fuel economy has
been the topic of discussion in many Tech Talks over the past
four years. Federal CAFE (Corporate Average Fuel Economy)
regulations aimed at improving fuel economy and reducing vehicle emissions in passenger cars
and light-duty trucks have challenged automakers to improve
their offerings or face fines. And original equipment manufacturers
(OEMs) are looking to oil formulators and manufacturers to
help them wring out every last tenth of a mile per gallon
in their vehicles to avoid CAFE charges.
But maybe you
haven't been thinking about fuel economy lately. Just
a few weeks ago, the price for a gallon of gasoline here in
Superior, Wis. dropped to $1.85. At that price, what do a
couple extra miles per gallon matter? I'm not an oil
futures analyst, but I doubt we'll see fuel prices
remaining around $2 a gallon for years to come, so fuel economy
will remain a subject of continual conversation.
While much of
the CAFE attention has been directed at the passenger-car
industry, on- and off-road big rigs have seemingly escaped
the same scrutiny. But that is soon going to change, as
a new proposed motor oil category (currently called PC-11)
for the heavy-duty vehicle industry is in the works. PC-11
is being spearheaded by the Engine Manufacturers Association
(EMA) to address the many changes taking place in the heavy-duty
industry through a new performance category intended to supersede
Whereas API CJ-4
focused primarily on reducing diesel emissions to meet increasingly
strict pollution limits, the new category will, for the first
time, include fuel economy regulations. That means millions
of vehicles equipped with large diesel engines - from over-the-road
tractor trailers to off-road farm and construction equipment
- will be facing tougher mpg requirements. Vehicle and fleet
owners will need advice to understand how the new heavy-duty
motor oil category will affect their equipment. That's good
news for AMSOIL Dealers.
await engine designers and oil formulators to create higher-performing
products that increase efficiency without jeopardizing engine
protection. In the passenger-car world, the trend is for lower-viscosity
oils as they provide less resistance and require less energy
to be pumped through an engine's network of parts. The
main concern with these thinner oils, however, is that they
are thinner! Yet, they are still tasked with providing robust
engine protection under extremely demanding operating
conditions. Imagine a low-viscosity oil circulating through
a multi-ton piece of highway construction equipment as it
rolls over rough terrain for 10-12 hours a day for months
on end. That low-viscosity oil better be good.
oils will increasingly be recommended by equipment manufacturers
for new engines. Alternatively, older engines were designed
to run on thicker oils. Therefore, it is anticipated that
the PC-11 category will be subdivided into PC-11A and PC-11
B. The former will fall within the viscosity limits set currently
and will also be backward-compatible with older engines. PC-11
B oils will include lower-viscosity oils than those under
the current CJ-4 classification and will be designed for use
in newer engines only.
PC-11A oils may
be designated API CK-4, the next letter after CJ-4, and will
have the same viscosity limits for diesel oils we all use
today and will be backward-compatible with older engines.
The PC-11 B diesel
oils will be called something different enough to reduce confusion
and misapplication, such as API FA-4 or FA-1, and will cover
the new lower-viscosity category. These new oils will provide
the same wear protection and will be required to pass the
same tests as PC-11A, but will only be recommended in newer
engines for improved fuel economy. The main difference between
PC-11A and PC-11B oils will be HTHS (High-Temperature/High-Shear)
viscosity, which tracks better with fuel economy than straight
It is expected
that initial licensing for the new PC-11 oils will occur sometime
between late 2016 and early 2017. The heavy-duty diesel market
is a giant one - literally - and the new PC-11 regulations
will open many doors for AMSOIL Dealers to serve this market
by providing the industry's best lubricants and service. Published, AMSOIL Magazine 05/15.
AMSOIL Signature Series

synthetic motor oils are formulated to surpass engine test
specifications, offering protection far greater than competing
motor oils for extended drain intervals. Most synthetic oil
manufacturers make no claim to extended drain intervals, deferring
to the maintenance schedule provided by the vehicle manufacturer.
With its unparalleled oil and warranty program, AMSOIL offers
consumers unprecedented protection and economics.
More than 20 years
ago, AMSOIL began using the NOACK volatility test as a comparison
tool and measurement of quality. Back then, nearly every oil
tested side-by-side with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils failed,
and those that passed barely squeaked by. Other oil companies
paid no attention to NOACK results until Ford Motor Company
made it a requirement for service fill oils, validating what
AMSOIL had said all along.
NOACK Volatility Test
Volatility Test determines the evaporation loss
of lubricants in high temperature service. The more
motor oils vaporize, the thicker and heavier they become,
contributing to poor circulation, reduced fuel economy
and increased oil consumption, wear and emissions. AMSOIL
Synthetic Motor Oil resists high temperature volatization
better than other motor oils. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor
Oil maintains peak fuel efficiency and reduces oil consumption
